We are nearing late afternoon here and I don’t know how your day is going but I feel like this……
Or perhaps more like this…..
I wish a nap was in order!
Rich put his parents on a plane bound for civilization yesterday. What a great time the past 3 weeks have been with Jackie and then with Ron here as well.
Our greatest “American miss” is being so far from family (that and Starbucks-hee) Fortunately, and you’ll understand my choice of wording as I explain, we have never lived close to family even while living in the States. Rich’s sister, Jen attended Teen Mania’s internship for a year and then went 5 hours away to University so we had her around those years but that is the closest we ever lived to fam. I say ‘fortunately’ in the sense that I believe because we were never close in proximity it made our overseas move a little bit easier. Now we pray we will see them as much as we were able while stateside. And we have been blessed with visits from my parents, Rich’s brothers, and his parents! In fact Jackie has been here 3 times (and I think every time gets harder for her—the heat, the bugs, the water...)
We understand it is a sacrifice on so many fronts to visit us and it makes us all the more grateful. I am so happy to have wonderful families- blood and in-laws.
Now back to reality….or off for a nap (oh, how I wish)!
